MACOORA ANNUAL MEETING
November 2009
1
GROWING A NATIONAL NETWORK OF REGIONAL SYSTEMS
2
FY 11 and beyond
• Despite strong support, IOOS funding has been stagnant
• Interagency Task Force on Ocean Policy provides an opportunity
– Heightening awareness of ocean and coastal issues nationally
– Endorsed regional approach to issues
– Task Force is now developing plan for using marine spatial
planning as a tool for achieving ecosystem-based management
– RAs are well positioned to serve as trusted source of regional
information in support of:
• marine spatial planning and the regional ocean governance efforts,
• Regionally-specific information on climate change trends
• Integrated information on the siting of offshore energy facilities - oil,
gas, wind, waves, currents
• Only source of information on the 3rd and 4th dimensions of the oceans

What will investment produce?
This investment will:
• ensure a national program implemented at the regional level for integrated coastal and
ocean and Great Lakes observations and predictions;
•
develop 11 data portals for the rapid integration of regional data in support of coastal
and marine spatial planning, and the efforts of the regional ocean alliances;
• provide access to real-time coastal ocean conditions for safer marine operations,
improved response to coastal hazards , adapting to regional climate change, and
ecosystem health;
• establish the national surface current mapping program to benefit search and rescue, oil
spill response, harmful algal bloom monitoring, and maritime transportation;
• implement the national data integration framework to ensure easy and rapid access to
diverse data and information products;
• provide sensor development and validation in diverse environments; and
• enhance the nation’s modeling and predictive capacity by ensuring model
interoperability.

NFRA Actions
• Launching grass roots advocacy campaign
– Need contacts in all states
– Build awareness of IOOS at the local level
• Developing marketing document articulating how the
network of 11 RAs contribute to five broad themes:
